Example text

CONCLUSION This paper is a formal presentation of the multivariate Student model for returns on financial assets. The paper shows that, under this model, portfolio returns also follow a Student t distribution. There is also a Student version of the market model. It preserves the linear regression type relationship between returns on stocks and returns on the market. However, the stock specific volatilities are time varying. The time variation is attributable to the market return. For users of quadratic utility, there are no practical obstacles to using the model for portfolio selection.

The parameter (i), which must be positive, is known as the degrees of freedom. It controls the extent of the fat tails: the smaller (i), the fatter the tails. Conversely, as 00 increases the distribution approaches the multivariate normal. The matrix V is symmetric (without loss of generality) and is positive defmite. Some examples of the Student t density are shown in figure 1. These are for 1, 20 and 00 degrees of freedom and illustrate the fatness of the tails for 00 = 1,20 when compared with normality (00 = 00).

While it is always true that the expected value of the error term Ei must be zero if the CAPM itself is true, it is not necessarily the case that this model will satisfy the statistical assumptions of regression that are a necessary prerequisite to estimating betas using ordinary least squares (OLS). To use OLS it is necessary that the error terms are normally distributed and are independent of market return. It is well known that departures from these assumptions can seriously reduce the accuracy of estimates computed using OLS.
